Amazon Prime Doc Behind the Card
So I stumbled upon this documentary last night. I only made it about half way through because I found it very frustrating. A lot of it circles around what I call the “dumb money” that entered the hobby during the pandemic. It does a good job explaining that phenomenon but misses several things. It talks about how they left the presses running in the junk wax days but they are quick to say that is not the case now. Panini is heavily represented and they talk about how they limit production which I see as laughable. One guy talks about how kids investing in cards now will be financially independent by the time they hit college. I am not sure when it was produced, I know it was sometime before the Fanatics takeover, but half of these guys interviewed must have lost their shirts since this doc was made. The best part of the documentary is when they talk to the guys that have had stores since the 80s and early 90s. I will listen to what insights they have on the hobby. Has any one else attempted to watch it or have any thoughts?
